Chapter Summary

The effectiveness of the protective responsibility is essential that this term combines with itself changing contents that are related to different levels of specific fields of international order and international law. In this respect, the responsibility to protect causes a limitation of sovereignty. On another level, the responsibility to protect is seen as an obligation of the international community. The importance of the concept of the responsibility to protect lies in the question of the necessary contribution of the individual States to provide a peaceful world order. In this perspective, the question of sovereignty is different. Responsibility to Protect appears in so far as the necessary limitation of sovereignty in a system that continues to rely on the direct order of states.  The original text of the chapter is in German.
